By the way, Tolkien used to refuse to sign most paperbacks. There is for example the story of Denys Gueroult, BBC radio producer. Whilst working for the Sound Archive Department in the 1960's he mangaged with great difficulty to organise an interview with Tolkien in his North Oxford home. The interview lasted about half an hour and in Gueroult's words "not very much occurred", but Tolkien agreed to sign Gueroult's copy of The Hobbit and his copy of The Return of the King. Gueroult's colleague, the journalist and writer Derek Parker, was also present but Tolkien refused to sign his paperback copy of The Lord of the Rings as there were 600 mistakes in that edition and not good enough.

[alpingloin:] I am in the US and I can confirm that i was unable to purchase the Deluxe TPR from Tolkien.co.uk because, "The item cannot be shipped to the country listed." I am not sure if it can be shipped outside the UK and just not to the United States, however.
I'm in the Netherlands, and I was able to order a copy to be sent over here. So was someone I know in Belgium (Beren will know him also - he frequents Dutch language Tolkien fora were Beren and I are also regulars).

Yes they did, sections of both The Hobbit and the Lord of The Rings jackets were shown.
